Terry determined Chelsea will bounce back

Chelsea captain John Terry is confident that Tuesday's Champions League humbling in Rome is the wake-up call his side needed and shows they still have much to prove.

Terry's men lost 3-1 to struggling Serie A side AS Roma in what was the worst performance of coach Luiz Felipe Scolari's time with the west London club.

However, the England skipper firmly believes that the scoreline will turn into a positive, and spur the Blues on to turn in a vastly improved performance against Blackburn Rovers back in the domestic action of the Premier League this weekend.

Terry said: "The result is maybe a kick up the backside that we needed. Maybe we need to realise we are not the best side that we thought we are.

"We didn't start well and gave Roma a lift. We had plenty of possession but we didn't really go anywhere. Roma's line-up wasn't very attacking; things have been difficult for them at home with their fans - and the pressure was on them and their manager.

"They hadn't won for two months, and we gave them the perfect start by not getting out of first gear. It gave them the confidence they needed.'

"Four of us were there - including 'Big Pete' [goalkeeper Petr Cech] - and we didn't deal with the ball. We needed to stay with the runners. After that, Alex and I were pushing on and trying to come back - and the team was all over the place.

"We showed no sign of the fight and determination that over the last few years has got us to where we've been. Apologies to the fans. It was a great turn-out - and sorry for the result.

"We have been playing some really good football with brilliant movement of late. But that has been collectively, as a team, and that is why we have been walking around teams and scoring goals. We didn't have any of that this time. We thought we could beat Roma as individuals - and we could never do that.''
